    as compared to

    Is this sentence correct?

    In fact, the powers of the EU in the field of sport under the Lisbon Treaty remain unchanged as compared to under the Constitutional Treaty.

    I'm not sure about the "as compared to under" part.

    Thanks.

    Re: as compared to

    The phrase is "as compared to".
    .

    means
    In this regard (the field of sport) the two treaties have the same effect, or, at least, the new treaty doesn't change anything.

    Re: as compared to

    I wasn't asking for an explanation of the meaning of the sentence - I'm the one who authored the sentence.

    My question was whether the use of "as compared to" is correct. Your response suggests that it is.

    You are correct to question this. I would remove "under" after "to", and then the sentence is good.

    The phrase itself "under the Constitutional Treaty" is good, but I would not follow one preposition with another preposition.
